Welcome in H.C.M.
I have gone through your query regarding post operative discomfort to your nephew, as he had been operated for adenoids
about 4 days back.
The symptoms you have told they are met with some patients and these are because of-
1- Post operative swilling in nasopharynx
2- Eustachian tube obstruction- Swelling in nasopharynx some times blocks eustachian tube opening which results in fullness in ear some times acute pain as well.
3- Blood crust on operated side some times give rise to nasal obstruction
So it will be better to cosult your surgeon he will find out the reasion after examining your nephew and accordinly treatment may be plan.
